The purpose of the Hutchinson County Sheriff’s Office is to provide protection to the citizens of Hutchinson County. This involves the prevention, detection, apprehension, prosecution, and detention of those persons who violate criminal, civil, state, or local laws. We provide assistance in emergency situations, medical distress and vehicle accidents.

Law enforcement is only part of the work done by the Sheriff’s Office. The department also provides traffic and parking enforcement, welfare checks, emergency response, crime reporting, and investigative services. We maintain the criminal warrant file for the county, provide court security, and transport prisoners both in and out of state as well as commitments to the Human Services Center in Yankton. We serve all court papers, including criminal, civil, protection orders, Executions of Judgment, and distress warrants.
